Just One Kiss........

and your Prince will come.....hahaha! I fell in love with this sweet Princess Ava stamp by the Greeting Farm the minute I saw it in Phebe's store, The Town Scrapper. Of course the stamp and all the accessories to make this card HAAAAAAD to come home with me and how could I resist with Phebe's buy 1 get the 2nd for 50%off SALE which ends tomorrow. You still have time to email Phebe at or contact her by phone at 519-882-0623 to place an order.

Edited to add: I'm entering this into this week's Flower challenge over at Practical Scrappers.

Princess Ava

This image reminds me so much of the fascination my girls had with frogs last summer. One day while daddy and his girls were playing in the backyard, they came across some frogs. Insert lots of jumping up and down and squealing ~ everyone but me of course ~ lol. They filled an empty Rubbermaid storage box with water, grass, branches and their new found treasures ~ the frogs ~ imagine my 'excitement'......yuck, yuck, yuck. They took care of them for a couple of weeks and fed them crickets from our local pet store until it was time to let them go. So this card is my hubby's for Valentine's from all his girls. I'm sure he'll get a kick out of it flowers and all.

Here's a close-up.
